NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. B, the only telehealth service that makes healthcare services available regardless of a patient’s ability to pay, announces an expansion to treat a range of everyday conditions. Americans across the nation will now be able to conveniently access low or no-cost virtual doctor consultations for a variety of conditions across dermatology, sexual health, reproductive health and primary care —all without leaving home.
Dr. B’s online consultation fee is only $15 for paying patients, which is less than the average co-pay for a doctor’s visit. Unlike other telehealth providers that often charge patients more for online services, Dr. B also offers a no-cost option for patients who qualify based on financial need. The new treatments expand upon Dr. B’s telehealth service, which launched earlier this year with treatment for Covid-19, including Paxlovid and molnupiravir (Lagevrio) — the two at-home oral Covid-19 antivirals authorized for use by the FDA.
“We have already provided thousands of no-cost care consultations since the launch of our telehealth platform in August, suggesting we’re filling a healthcare void that exists for many people,” said Cyrus Massoumi, Founder and CEO of Dr. B. “It has been my life’s work to improve the efficiency and equity of healthcare. Our expanded list of treatment options brings us one step closer to making sure everyone can get the care they need.”
"With tens of millions of Americans affected by eczema, rosacea and cold sores every year there’s a high demand for doctor’s appointments. The new dermatology treatment options at Dr. B ensure patients can get treatments without having to wait weeks or pay high prices for care,” said Dr. Bobby Buka, one of New York’s leading dermatologists, CEO of The Dermatology Specialists and Head of Strategy at Dr. B.
A list of conditions Dr. B provides treatments for include:
- Cold sores
- Hair loss
- Fungal infection
- Genital herpes
- Genital warts
- Erectile dysfunction
- Yeast infection
- Urinary tract infection
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Birth control
Patients looking to address their health concerns and seek treatment often face hurdles like difficulty in finding a doctor’s appointment or the significant price markups of online options. With Dr. B, patients skip the waiting room and complete a virtual health assessment. A licensed medical provider reviews the patient's medical record and, if appropriate, provides the patient with a prescription, which can be filled at any pharmacy.
Dr. B is currently available across 41 states including in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
